The Halachos of S'firas Ho'Omer, laws of counting & customs of mourning

The period between Pesach and Shavuos comes with the customs and sadness of mourning and the joyful halachos of counting S’firas Ho’Omer. In this book, Rabbi Meyer Bodner adapts the style and clarity of his distinguished father’s widely circulated sefarim (Halachos of Muktza, Halachos of Brochos, etc.) to elucidate the practical need-to know customs and halachos of S’firas Ho’Omer.

For example:

  • May one attend and dance at a friend’s wedding and Sheva Brochos on days when it is his custom to show aveilus?
  • Is it permitted to listen to relaxing music when it is his custom to show aveilus?
  • May a women cut her nails, tweeze her eyebrows or have electrolysis done while keeping the customary aveilus?
  • Is it permitted to take a haircut or shave on the first day of Shloshes Yemei Hagbola?
  • May a bar mitzvah celebration be scheduled on a day other than the boy’s birthday (not bo b’yom)?
  • If one mistakenly counted the days but omitted the weeks, or cannot remember if yesterday he counted correctly, may he continue counting with a brocha?
  • May a woman count with a brocha and may she be motzi her friend?

Reviewed for halachic accuracy by Rabbi Shmuel Felder shlit”a and edited and reviewed by Rabbi Yisroel Pinchos Bodner shlit”a, this sefer accurately provides the answer to these and a myriad of other questions and quandaries concerning the customs and halachos of S’firas Ho’Omer.
